Outstanding build! Beautiful paint job! 

I plan to make an F-16 in these markings too, can I ask which paint you used for the green?



Hi Chris, I often had this question ... short answer, no paint manufacturer has this color in their range!


I took my favorite paint Gunze and for the base coler I used the MrHobby Aqueous number H 418 Light Blue RLM 78 (Luftwaffe aircraft) and start mixing to get the right tone. I used a variety of reference pics, because this greenish color looks so different on lots of pictures.


🍀 good luck with the mixing...!

Bagus sekali!


There are not enough Indonesian aircraft made. Excellent job.


Now, how about a Hawk 209?

Terima kasih..! Haha...I do like the exotic schemes of those bird, but Iam busy with a F-14A right now and I've still some project on my shelf-of-doom to built...😆

I usually find F-16s very boring, but you’ve done a great job on this one. The unusual colour scheme lifts it out of the 

ordinary , great modelling !



Thank you very much Wulfman, IMHO a real eye-catcher!

The Indonesians are very creative and imaginative when it comes to choosing camo schemes for their military aircraft.Remember the early camo for the  F16As or their collection of Mig17s, Mustangs and Skyhawks? They're so different and some modellers would prefer Jansen's F-16 colour scheme rather than the usual dull gray examples and so would I. Jansen.... your TNI-AU F-16C is simply great!

A very nice compliment Kampartiger, thx mate...!

I seriously don't know how you guys do this. I know that the Tamiya F-16 series gets good reviews for fit and detail, but how many of you build these kits so flawlessly and then paint and weather them so perfectly just astounds me. The painting of the exhaust and ejection seat is absolutely incredible. And the decals look as if they've been painted on. I can't help but applaud you and curse myself at the same time!

Thank you Filler, I put a lot of passion and dedication in my work!

That's really nice work - well done!  Hadn't seen a Viper in those colours before

Thank you, glad you liked it!
